June Goals

Whew June 2nd where has time gone?

I need to make some June goals to keep focused. But then again I have 2 finished quilt tops that need quilting.  The Ginger Rose which I pin basted in the barn on Friday.

I also have this UFO which was a bargello quilt that I made years ago.  I even have backing fabric for it!
This is the only good picture I could get of it the sun porch was too bright today!  I would really like to finish this one.

1. Quilting on a domestic machine though is very labor intensive at times especially with large quilts so my goal is to at least work on the quilting for the Ginger Rose.

2.  I have my family room curtains I would like to make from Barns which I used the tutorial from Bee In My Bonnet's Quilty Barn Along

3.  This pile in the project box is a Yellow Brick Road I started to make for my youngest daughter.

I am going to work on this one this month I think.

4.  Finish up my paper piecing for the back of the Hugs and Kisses quilt. 

1 more letter for the first name, and the middle name and it will be done.  Wow I really need more pins to pin baste with because I am going to have 3 quilt tops completed. 

Then there are my works in progress.  Farmer's Wife quilt blocks, jewel box quilt blocks, Country Charmer blocks, ancient flying geese blocks, Quilty Barn AlonIg, and Lazy Sunday Mystery.  I also unearthed an old BOM which has all the blocks done, maybe I will find the pattern and work on that.  But I oh so want to start a new project!!!! Maybe working on an old project will seem new again like the Yellow Brick Road.

What are you working on for this month?


  1. Whew! you have a lot of neat things to work on this month. I love your bargello quilt. I have always wanted to make one. I have made lots of those yellow brick road quilts. They are fun and pretty quick. Good luck on your goals.
    Guess what? You won my giveaway for working on your May goals. I am sending you an email you can reply back with your street address. Congrats!

  2. Oh! I forgot to tell you that you can link up your goals to my blog. I finally have a post up.

  3. Love the two quilt tops you have (at the beginning of your post) - can't wait to see what you get done this month!

    Congrats for winning the May UFO challenge!

    1. Thanks so much Nessa. I have so many UFO's and it is so fun to get them finished.
